### Is there any academic reference which suggests/uses dual values as initialization of Lagrangian multipliers?

The Lagrangian relaxation approach is used to generate lower (upper) bounds for minimization (maximization) problems by moving some constraints to the objective function and multiplying them by "...

### Estimate lagrangian multiplier based on instance characteristics

Assume we have a simple resource allocation problem, where all players have the same cost, but a different utility $a_s$. The resources assigned to a certain player must be between $L$ and $M$. ...

### Lagrangian Relaxation The Weak Lower Bound

I am applying Lagrangian Relaxation with Subgradient Optimization Method and trying to solve a MIP model. Before testing the large-scale instances, I wanted to see how it performs on small-size ones. ...

### Using LR-based method to solve mixed integer programming

When we use Lagrangian relaxation-based methods to solve mixed integer programming, does the convergence of multipliers to the optimum as well as convergence of primal variables to the optimum happen ...

### Lagrangian Relaxation bound greater than optimal solution

I am working on a Lagrangian relaxation for a minimization MIP. Everything seemed to be working fine before I started to run a batch of instances. Checking the log results for one of the instances ...

### How to Speed Up the subgradient optimization procedure in a Lagrangian Relaxation Scheme

I'm currently working on the following problem (a variant of maximal k-covering problem): \begin{align} \max&\quad z =\sum\limits_{\omega\in \Omega}x_{\omega} \label{imbip3a} \\ \text{s.t.}&\...
